TWU volleyball: Spartans close first half with split against WolfPack

After losing a tough five-set match to the Thompson Rivers WolfPack on Friday,  the Trinity Western Spartans closed out their pre-holiday schedule with a 3-1 win on Saturday to wrap up a two-day visit to Kamloops.

The split gives the Spartans women’s volleyball team a 7-3 record as they break until January.

“We played solid volleyball tonight and as a whole we served better and hit our targets better. We made the right people play the ball and we attacked at a better efficiency,” commented TWU head coach Ryan Hofer. “It is great to end the first semester with a win and earn a split on the weekend.”

Chelsea Hudson ran the Spartan attack and finished with 37 set assists to go with 11 digs and two blocks.

Leading hitters for TWU were leftside Royal Richardson with 18 kills, six digs and five blocks, middle Alicia Perrin with 16 kills, at 56 percent, and eight blocks and outside Amy Leschied with 10 kills and 13 digs. TWU libero Jodi Neufeld led the Spartans defence with 16 digs.

In Friday’s match, Richardson had another 22 kills with eight more digs and six block assists.

Leschied had 18 kills, plus a service ace, nine digs, a solo block and four block assists and Perrin had a dozen kills, two service aces, two digs and nine block assists.
